Securus Technologies a Texas-based technology solutions company recently announced its new drone detection technology. The technology is currently in its pilot testing phase in several correctional and prison facilities. It offers new hope for the security department since it will be used to deter potential drone attacks or penetration by the inmates who use it as an avenue for delivering contrabands.
As per research, there has been an increase in the number of inmates using drones to smuggle drugs, contraband, and other illegal assets into the prisons. The breach poses a significant danger to not only the inmates but also the correctional officers and prison warders. This trend puts the whole prison system in grave danger.
For this reason, Securus has had to dedicate resources for the past 18 months to develop this new drone technology.
“This technology is still at its infancy stage but is set to be better as we conduct more trials. So far, the results we have received are positive something that makes us even more hopeful of this technology. We have invested heavily in this drone detection technology, and we are working hand in hand with the officers to ensure that it delivers great results.” said the spokesman.
“We have made good use of our systems experience and collaborations with relevant partners to fine-tune this new drone detection technology to make it more effective.” He further stated.
The drone technology will surely help to block the avenues that inmates use to deliver these harmful and illegal substances.
The company’s continued dedication towards professional service delivery has not gone unnoticed. The company won several awards in varies categories in this year’s 2018 Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer service. The awards are the world’s top prize for contact center, customer service, sales professional and business development.
